Toronto-area Mass for the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary

Dear friends, this coming Thursday is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary. Please invite family, friends, and those of good will who are searching for the Truth.

Let us call to mind the words of salutation given to Mary by the Archangel Gabriel on the greatest day in human history:

"Into her presence the angel came, and said: Hail, thou who art full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women." (Luke 1:28).

Let similar words be on our lips.

It is a sadness to me that the Reformed tradition does not honour Mary as the Mother of God.
I told a Catholic friend that there is always something missing for me at the end of a Protestant service. 'Mary is the person you are missing,' she replied.

'O Divine Baby in the cradle,
All that is pride in me
Is my mind bowed in homage
Upon Your Mother's knee.

'O Divine Baby in the cradle,
All that is joy in me
Is that I have saved from the ruin
Of my soul Your infancy.'

'Christmas, 1939' by Patrick Kavanagh (1904-1967).

Only when the unbelievers begin to contemplate the terrible nature of sin, and the ruin of souls everywhere, will they be able to come to Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ
Son of God,
Have mercy on me,
A sinner.
